Well, FOX just pulled an ABC/CNN editing job on the Zimmerman interview.
I think Zimmerman has been treated horribly by the media, but I’m not sure he did himself any favors last night. Overall, he was flat and made some statements that are going to haunt him. I’m wondering what’s with these attorneys allowing their clients to go on tv for interviews, as in this case and also in Sandusky.
I felt the following statements were going to be picked up for replay and they are cold:
Hannity: “Is there anything that you regret? Do you regret getting out of the car to follow Trayon that night?”
Zimmerman: No, sir.
Hannity asked. “Do you regret that you had a gun that night?”
“No, sir,” Zimmerman, 28, replied. “I feel that it was all God’s plan and not for me to second-guess it or judge it.”
(Cringe) That is a stunning statement.
FOX just played this clip, but they cut it off just before the “I feel that it was all God’s plan…..”
I don’t know what he meant by that, because how could it have been “all God’s plan?” But whatever he meant, he did say it and it should not have been edited out. Misleading. That does not accurately inform the person who did not watch the interview.
P. S.: Well, now they are doing a segment discussing the “God’s plan” quote, but still the tape was edited to exclude it earlier this morning.

He started this. The time is at hand to make the stand. He is a real piece of work, taking on the church, the supreme court, the rule of law, just trying to undermine the entire constitution. If he is able to rip this consitution, which is his utmost desire, we are all going to be eating dog meat for a long time to come.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has taken a bold stand for religious freedom. In a recent statement, titled “Our First, Most Cherished Liberty,” the bishops call for repeal of contraception coverage mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services. The clarified position sets up a dramatic confrontation with the Obama administration—and would, if the bishops prevail, help preserve the religious liberty of all Americans.
Barack Obama listens to a question from a guests attending the Health Care Summit.
The HHS mandate requires employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception and sterilization services. It is, according to the bishops, an “unjust law.” They write: “It cannot be obeyed and therefore one does not seek relief from it, but rather its repeal.”
The statement is a rebuke of President Obama and the so-called accommodation his administration proposed in February. It also raises the stakes between the president and the leaders of America’s Catholic Church.
The bishops call on Catholics in America, “in solidarity with our fellow citizens,” not to obey the law. They implicitly compare the HHS regulation to a segregation-era statute, and even cite Martin Luther Kind Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” In a not-so-subtle manner, the bishops tell the Obama administration that they are willing to go to prison rather than comply with the mandate’s provisions.

That’s the Supreme Court he’s talking about. He actually said “unintelected”.
“And I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.” Obama said.
It certainly was not passed by a “strong majority” and isn’t every law that the Supreme Court considers a law passed by a “democratically elected congress?”
I am confident this will be upheld because it should be upheld.
And again, that is not just my opinion. That is the opinion of a whole lot of constitutional law professors and academics and judges and lawyers who have examined this law, even if they’re not particularly sympathetic to this piece of legislation or my presidency.
He sure is counting on people being “ignert” as Al Sharpton says.

The judge in the Casey Anthony trial has been branded by a former mistress as big a liar as Casey!

There are also some investigations ongoing for witness tampering.
And the beat goes on, and on, and on.

In the video below, Casey is at sentencing and at the defense table, in a nice soft looks like blue to me colored pull over shirt, hair down, smiling at times, gesturing, messing with her hair and from about 24.00 she is talking to Ms. Sims in what seems a rather serious conversation, But at about 25.32 she looks up and sees Jose Baez as he walks in. From there on for a while, it is their interaction that is worth the price of admission. My. My. I was watching this in real time and I have searched and searched for a shorter video to show this segment, but so far, this is the best I can find – a video of the whole thing, so I tried to pinpoint this particular part.
Later in the day, lightning struck a tree at Suburban Drive close to the spot where Caylee’s body was found.
The tree is about five feet off the pavement on Suburban Drive and the memorial is another 10 to 15 feet beyond that. A short trail which leads down into the woods to the memorial site is essentially at the foot of the tree, according to FOX 35 Orlando in Orange County.
Just a coincidence, I am sure, as thousands of trees are hit by lightning, but it is the place and the time of this one that give you pause.
Jose Baez has already been dropped by a talent agency, and I hear that Vivid has withdrawn the offer made to Casey to “star” in some poro flicks. This case could go either way. Maybe they’ll make a bunch of money on it – and maybe not.
I dunno, but it looks like Somebody might be interceding for Caylee.

I am expecting Casey Anthony to be released with time served today. At maximum she could only be sentenced to 4 years.
So the jury has spoken. I can understand their verdict. I really can. I remember when the state closed their case, I thought, is that it? Big holes remained. But for the remainder of the trial I was not on her side. I guess almost no one was or is.
I do hope she is charged with restitution for the massive fraud she pulled. And I really think her lawyer(s) should be sanctioned or fined, too, because at least Baez knew from the beginning Caylee was dead. He has been her attorney for the entire time, and almost the first sentence out of his mouth at opening was that Caylee was NEVER missing. So it is unthinkable how they let it go on and on. Under any scenario, the state’s or the defense’s, there was no need for any search. Honestly, the accident theory to me is almost worse than a murder. At least in murder, you might expect that the body would be hidden and tossed, but if this was an accident, they gave their dogs a better burial than they gave Caylee. Horrifying.
I do think they should transport her to Pinellas County and deposit her there upon release. Maybe one or more of the jurors would like to take her in.
Just being sarcastic. I heard she and Cindy will be going to Texas. Good for Florida. Bad for Texas.
